The four of us ordered 4 different entrees and 4 different desserts and everyone was very pleased with their choices. My husband especially liked his pistachio dessert - which came with an orange liquor drizzled over it. We ate outside. Service was very friendly and...More

Convito is nicely decorated and is a pleasure to sit in looking at all of the interesting pictures on the walls. The white bean soup the five of us started with was very good and ample. The assortment of breads was also quite good. I...More

Had a lunch with girlfriends here. Sorely disappointed in portions, prices, and lackluster presentation. A cobb salad was the size of a dinner salad with tasteless tomatoes and cost $14. Vegetable crepe was a soggy mess. Highlight was the chocolate lava dessert.

Plus the take out deli counter with prepared foods is great for busy families. Great lunch options and remember this place for Mother's day or other days when you would like a great brunch or lunch.

Reliable staples of Italian cuisine from various regions, along with a good mix of bistro fare. The bean soup is excellent, pastas are done right, and desserts are very good. We've been going here for close to 30 years and sometimes wish for a little...More

Excellent food, service, & ambience. We enjoyed browsing the market afterward. It was a good choice to meet up with out-of-town family for a holiday meal.

Feels cozy in the cold months and fun to sit outside in the warmer months. The service is usually pretty good with a nice wine selection.
